"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Another African nation breaks with Chirac to back the US.

President Yoweri Museveni yesterday threw his weight behind America's George W. Bush against Iraq.
Addressing journalists at State House in Nakasero after a meeting with US Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Mr Walter Kansteiner, President Museveni said America has a right to defend itself against terrorists.

"If the Americans are convinced that (Iraq's President) Saddam (Hussein) is linked to the Al Qaeda network (of Osama bin Laden), then it is within their rights to defend themselves," the President said.

Looking relaxed in a sky-blue shirt and a dark trouser, Mr Museveni said he respects the United Nations Security Council decisions, but also reminded Ugandans about the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks on the US, in which more than 3,000 people were killed.
